Getting desperate for time and an idea. One of my problems with this challenge is that I don't have a tripod at the moment.
I noticed that this combination of this lamp and the white brick wall in my kitchen has a rather moody atmosphere when it is darker. I left some adjecent lights on so I'd have enough light to make a sharp image and I set the camera to b&w at ISO 100, and extra contrast.
I cropped it the image a bit to make a more pleasing composition and adjusted the hue/saturation levels to achieve the blue light.
I like the high contrast of this image and the simple composition. Considering I made the image in about 20 minutes an hour-and-a-half before the deadline I think I did pretty good. I was really skeptical when I sat down at the computer to upload the shots.

I was a bit confused about the guidelines so I'm not sure I met the challenge but it doesn't matter to me because I'm extremely pleased with the result.

I think that's only one light source.... Nice colour and contrast, but it doesn't meet the challenge.

I don't see multiple sources of light on this.

A second look shows no way could the lower portion of the light fixture be visible had it not been for other light sources.

Very nice capture of color and texture. Maybe could have been cropped just a little tighter.

I think a 3rd's composition would work better for this shot..

Looks like only a single light source to me.

really nice, but maybe another light source could help the image?
